Hoff The Record the six episode series starring David Hasselhoff premieres in the us in the early spring on AXS TV.
The U.K. scripted mockumentary series HOFF THE RECORD to the U.S. for the first time ever, making its network prime time debut in early spring. The six-episode series stars international superstar, The Hoff (aka David Hasselhoff) playing a fictionalized version of himself who moves across the pond to get his career back on track, while navigating through increasingly surreal—and hilarious—circumstances.
The series surrounds a brilliantly self-deprecating David Hasselhoff' with some of the best established and new comedy talent from the UK. This critically acclaimed series is a semi-scripted comedy shot in a verité style following David's portrayal of the American TV icon "The Hoff"—the star of BAYWATCH and KNIGHT RIDER, and the man whose voice single-handedly brought down the Berlin Wall. Coming off his fifth divorce and finding his stateside popularity fading, The Hoff decides to head to London in a last-ditch effort to save his legacy. Lured by promises of starring in a new biopic about his life, The Hoff quickly finds that nothing is as he thought it would be, as he finds he has to audition to play himself -- and is told in no uncertain terms by the director that he's not right for the role.
Originally debuted in the U.K. on June 18, 2015 HOFF THE RECORD isproduced by the award-winning makers of Ricky Gervais' AN IDIOT ABROAD and distributed by BBC Worldwide North America, is the second British series to premiere on AXS TV, following the success of Simon Cowell's megahit singing competition THE X FACTOR UK.
